6:30 pm
likllywside rismom clink >> pelley: now it's a holy war between trump and the pope. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. >> pelley: also tonight, two days before the nevada caucus, a personal side of hillary clinton. >> my mother met me at the door, and she said, "there is no room for cowards in this house." >> pelley: a hospital pays ransom to hackers to get its computers back. and from football to footlights. >> i got good feet. >> pelley: a former nfl star
6:31 pm
it may sound odd, but all i care about is love captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. reporting tonight from las vegas. >> pelley: the odds-makers here at ceasar's palace never bet on this, but in a campaign that has seen just about everything, we now have donald trump feuding with the pope. it started when francis, on his flight home from mexico, said that if trump wants to build a wall on the mexican border, he is not a christian. then, all hell broke loose. major garrett is in south carolina. >> for a religious leader to question a person's faith is disgraceful. >> reporter: donald trump said mexico fed the holy father propaganda. >> so they met with the pope, and they, obviously, got to the pope, and they're telling him what a bad guy donald trump is. he doesn't know me. warning:
6:32 pm
attacked by isis, which, as everyone knows, is isis' ultimate trophy, i can promise you that the pope would have only wished and prayed that donald trump would have been president. >> reporter: trump said no leader should question another's christian faith, forgetting this recent twitter post: no recent u.s. political figure has dared cross the papacy. trump supporters we met found it refreshing. >> i think it was direct. i think people need to know about what's going on in this world. >> i thought it was appropriate. i thought he needed to let people know, you know, why the pope was saying derogatory things about him and the reason behind it. >> reporter: trump has deified political conventions and manners before, insulting mexicans at his presidential announcement. >> they're bringing drugs. they're bringing crime. they're rapists.
6:33 pm
vietnam prisoner of war and 2008 g.o.p. nominee ceasar's palace. >> he's not a war here pope i like people that weren't i hate to tell you. >> reporter: the one constant-- trump drives the conversation and leaves his rivals, including ted cruz, veering in another direction. >> and that's between donald and the pope. i'm not going to get in the middle of that. >> reporter: south carolina's among the safest places for trump to pick even a small fight with the pope. >> pelley: major, thanks very much. the republican primary in south carolina is saturday. trump has a commanding lead nationally. in a new cbs news poll of republican voters out tonight. he leads his closest rival, ted cruz, nearly two to one. john kasich gets the most-improved award.
6:34 pm
nine points since last month. there is a very emotional moment at a kasich campaign stop in clemson, south carolina, today. >> over a year ago, a man who was like my second dad, he killed himself. and then a few months later, my parents got a divorce, and then a few months later, my dad lost his job. and i was in a really dark place fair long time. i was pretty depressed. but i found hope, and i found in the lord and in my friends, and now i found it in my presidential candidate they support. and i'd really appreciate one of those hugs you've been talking about. ( applause ) >> pelley: kasich told the young man, "the lord will give you strength. i promise you, if you can ask him."
6:35 pm
clinton has an eight-point lead nationally on bernie sanders. here in nevada two days before the caucuses, they are neck and neck. here's nancy cordes. >> we're going to convince people to caucus on saturday! >> reporter: nevada has suddenly become a crap-shoot for clinton, her double-digit lead evaporating after sanders won big in the granite state. >> we surprise them in new hampshire. we're going to surprise them here in nevada. >> reporter: clinton has spent the past year courting nevada's large latino population. >> well, we're going to get a path to citizenship, a path to citizenship. that's what we want, right? >> reporter: but vermont senator's message also plays well in the state hardest hit by the foreclosure crisis. >> you have lived through the greed and illegal behavior of wall street. >> reporter: nevada's largest union, the culinary workers, has
6:36 pm
president obama in '08. >> obama! obama! >> reporter: geoconda arguello-kline is one of the union's top officers. >> the members all were asking, say, what's happening right now, would say, look, you have to listen at what's going on, and you need to participate. >> reporter: nationally, sanders still gets higher marks in the cbs poll for being honest and trusted worthy, but 41% of democrats say his proposals are not realistic compared to just 14% who say that about clinton's plans. she's also seep as the candidate most likely to get things done in washington by a wide 26-point margin. nevada is a notoriously hard state to poll. people move in and out of the state a lot, and democrats can register on caucus day. the bottom line, scott, is neither campaign has any idea who's going to win here on saturday. >> pelley: nancy cordes on the campaign for us. nancy, thank you very much. for clinton, these are high
6:37 pm
after losing new hampshire in a landslide, and essentially tying in iowa. she's decided to stay right here through the caucus. we spoke to her in her las vegas campaign office today. what do you think donald trump and bernie sanders have tapped into? it's a powerful thing. >> look, i do think, scott, people are angry. people like, you know, their government's not working for them. the economy's not working. the political system is not working. so i think people are angry, but they're aouny r solutions. but i also see in the eyes of the people i'm meeting with, okay, tell me something i can believe. don't over-promise. tell me what i can believe you will do for me and my family. and that's what i've tried to do. >> pelley: your resume checks almost every box in terms of experience, but that doesn't seem to be what the american people want in this election. >> you know, i think at the end of the day, voters understand they are selecting someone to be both president and commander in
6:38 pm
experience that i have that will enable me on day one to do all aspects of the job. i think democrats are also beginning to really focus on who can actually beat the republicans. i know how to go after what republicans stand for and to defeat them because i believe with all my heart, everyone of the ones running on the republican side would be really bad for america. >> pelley: what's your tax plan? who gets a tax increase? who gets a tax cut? >> first, i am not raising taxes on the middle class, period. i'm going after incomes $5 million or more that i think have too many opportunities to game the system and escape paying the taxes that they should. i'm going after corporations that are gaming the system. i want to have a sensible corporate tax policy. >> pelley: senator sanders said that he would raise taxes on any family that made $250,000 and above. is that your level, $250,000? >> i said i will not raise taxes
6:39 pm
but here's the problem with senator sander's plan-- his numbers don't add up. there is no way for him to fulfill the promises he is making without raising taxes on the middle class. >> pelley: the. >> pelley: you know in '76, jim carter famously said, "i will not lie to you." >> well, i will tell you, i have tried in every way i know how, literally from my years as a young lawyer, all the way through my time as secretary of state to level with the american people. >> pelley: you talk about leveling with the american people. have you always told the truth? >> i have always tried to, always, ald alzheimer's. >> pelley: some people are going to call that wiggle room that you just gave yourself "always tried to." jimmy carter said, "i will never lie to you." >> you're asking me to say, "have i ever?" i don't i ever have. i don't will believe i ever had of have. i don't believe i ever will. i am going to do the best i can to level with the american people. >> pelley: we'll be back a little bit later in the broadcast with more of the interview with hillary clinton, including the advice she got
6:40 pm
but right now, charlie rose is in new york with the rest of the charlie. >> interesting view from the campaign trail, thank you, scott. today, we learned the attack that shut down computers at a california hospital until a ransom was paid is far from an isolated case. hackers are hitting soft targets all over the country. here's john blackstone. >> reporter: the cyber criminals who collected the $17,000 ransom from the hollywood presbyterian medical center are part of an increasingly lucrative online crime wave. hackers break into a computer network, lock out other users, and demand a ransom, usually to be paid in the nearly untraceable digital currency bitcoins. is it the only option they have is paying the money? >> they can lose their data. in the most cases, yes. >> reporter: lillian ablon, a cyber-security analyst at the rand corporation, has been following the growing use of
6:41 pm
>> ransomware attacks tend to be on entities that are smaller that don't have security measures in place which is why we hear about ransomware attacks on hospitals, on fire stations, on schools, rather than the large companies. >> reporter: since january 2015, hackers have collected at least $325 million in ransom payments, according to a report by the cyber threat alliance. victims range from the hospital in hollywood to a sheriff's department in tennessee, to the city government of detroit. this month, even small-town school districts in mississippi, new jersey, and south carolina have been hit. in the south carolina schools, the director of technology charles hucks is trying to save the system without paying the $8.5,000 ransom. >> we're going server by server, backup by backup, to see exactly what we have in the time it takes to restore those backups. and it will be as about businessdecision.
6:42 pm
on home computers have been victims, charlie. the best protection-- keep antivirus software up to date, and never click on a link in an unsolicited e-mail. >> thank you, john. that natural gas leak in porter ranch, california, was declared permanently sealed today. for four months, a broken well spewed methane that made people sick and turned the l.a. suburb into a ghost town. some families returned today. monitors will stay in place to make sure the air is safe to breathe. president obama is making a historic trip to cuba next month. today, he vowed to raise human rights issues with president calvin coolidge. some republicans in congress worried the trip will legitimize the communist government. mr. obama will be the first sitting american president to travel to cuba since calvin coolidge in 1928. still ahead, what pregnant women in the u.s. need to know about the zika virus. and a helicopter crash caught on

clinton about the remarkable life of her mother, dorothy rodham, who ran away from an abusive home at the age of 14 and made her own way through the great depression. mrs. rodham died in 2011 at the age of 92. how much of what we're hearing is your mother? >> well-- >> pelley: which words are her word? >> well, a lot of it is. you know, i wish she were still here. she was in '08. she gave me so much support. and she was also a great, you know, mirror. >> pelley: tell me about a moment, if you would, with your mother, as a little girl, that was formative for you. >> you know, i was pretty shy. i was a kind of reserved little girl. >> pelley: really! >> yes. i would go outside to play, and, literally, i would get knocked down and pushed around by all the little kids. and so the kids knocked me down, pushed me around.
6:52 pm
and my mother met me at the door, and she said, "there is no room for cowards in this house. you go right back out there and stand up for yourself." so i came back out, and i said, -- i-- i i'm not going to run inside the house. i'm here. i want to play." and literally, they formed a circle, and this one girl who had been so mean to me came over and she push meade and i just pushed her right back, and she was so surprised. and they all just looked at me, and they said, okay. and so i played that day and every day after that. but if my mother had not met me and had not given me that tough love that i think every kid needs at some point in his or her life, my life might have been very different. >> pelley: no room for cowards. >> no room for cowards in this house. >> pelley: secretary clinton. in a moment, charlie rose in new
